Accessibility lacking | THE DAILY HERALD

The need for wheelchair accessible sidewalks and other facilities for differently-abled persons is again underscored by this photo of an island visitor in her motorised chair manoeuvring in traffic.

She had to deal with agitated motorists, who were in a hurry to transit Hendrikstraat, honking at her to speed up. She could not go any faster nor did she have the possibility to pull aside to give way to them. Another obstruction for wheelchair users and pedestrians is drivers who park on the sidewalk as seen just across from Philipsburg police station.
